Following a popular summer launch, Marco is also extending his kids eat free offer to continue throughout the year.

This offer is valid for children under 12 and includes a main and soft drink from the kids menu.
Monday means steak night at Wheeler’s of St James’s. The restaurant has introduced its new steak night offer which includes a delicious steak served with chips and a glass of wine, all for just £19.95.
4 – A Little of what you like
The perfect way to begin your culinary experience, Wheeler’s hors d’oeuvres menu features a host of delicious starters that will leave you spoilt for choice. Timeless sea food dishes such as a Wheeler’s crab cocktail with avocado, properly garnished smoked salmon served with crusty bread and crispy calamari are just some of the delicacies that decorate the new menu.
5 – The Wheeler’s Classics
True to his unique flair, Marco has penned a Wheeler’s classics menu which showcases his renowned twists on some of our favourite English dishes. The Governor’s fish and chips, Wheeler’s fish cake with poached hen’s egg, Mr Lamb’s shepherd’s pie with buttered garden peas and Wiltshire ham with homemade piccalilli, duck egg and triple cooked chips are some of the ultimate comfort food pleasers that feature on his menu.
6 – Decadent Desserts
Freshly baked crumble with ice cream, Wheeler’s poached pear with vanilla cream and passion fruit sauce and a hazelnut praline and Mr White’s indulgent tiramisu all feature on Wheeler’s decadent dessert menu.
Rich in both flavour and history, Wheeler’s Cambridge burnt cream is an English equivalent to crème brûlée and is inspired by the original recipe from Trinity College, which dates back to 1630.
Or if you prefer sticking to a savoury treat, Wheeler’s selection of fine cheeses is the perfect way to complete your meal. Enjoy a selection of vintage stilton, mature cheddar and ripe brie – as the great Perry Smith said: ‘you only need three cheeses’.
7 – A stunning location
Cast your eyes over Wheeler’s breath-taking views of Liverpool’s waterfront, including the Albert Dock, the Wheel of Liverpool and the River Mersey, while only being a stone’s throw away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. The restaurant’s sleek interior offers the perfect haven to retreat from those chilly autumn winds and unwind with a delicious meal.
